I am in Thailand and had anal sex with ladyboy. Condom broke and he came inside me. Went to hospital and was tested neg. and given PEP. Ladyboy got tested negative 12 hours after sex with me. Doctors told me to stop taking PEP. What are my chances of still getting HIV. Thank you
Response from Dr. Wohl
There remains a possibility that your partner was HIV infected but in the stage prior to antibodies to HIV becoming detectable (also called acute HIV infection). To be safe, I would recommend a 4 week course of PEP and retesting at between 1 and 3 months.
